We would like to take a moment to thank our remarkable community, who for generations has made our historic parade possible.
It was another fantastic year! We once again hosted over 25,000 people for a fun-filled parade consisting of over 100 floats, bands and other entries. We also had over 900 old friends watch the parade live online, both here in the States and all over the world! Thank you to everyone for all of your support, time and encouragement, and we'll see you all next year!
The 107th Parade
Parade starts 10:00 am Tuesday July 4, 2017
